Ok I am back from my baby sabbatical. Our family has been very busy and has changed a lot! We got a new guy, Patton. We are so in love with our little boy. I feel like there are a million things to say and record about all that has happened in the past few months but that would be impossible so I am gonna skip it for now and start from the present time.
I am the happiest homemaker there ever was. I absolutely love staying home and taking care of my sweet baby. I feel so lucky have a wonderful husband who supports my decision to stay home with the kids. I am learning how to take better care of our home and how to better run the budgeting and housework and cooking. It has been such a rewarding experience.
I have also been enjoying the challenge of decorating our home on almost no budget. It actually make it more fun I think. I will do a post later of before and afters around the house. I had resisted the temptation to really decorate because we didnt know how long we would be here, but we have been here so long now with no signs of having to move so I thought why not. I am trying to keep in mind that all my decorations should be able to translate to and apartment where I will be stuck with eggshell white walls. boo. There are s many times that I think white will look so good against this wall or that wall but then think, "but it will look terrible against he white walls we are moving to. My hope is that we will live here until Parker graduates and then we will only have to be in an apartment for a short time before we can hopefully buy our first house. I have so much that I am ready to do to a house of my own!
As far as being a mommy, I love it! There are so many joys as well as challenges but I am learning unlimited patience. I keep reminding myself that there is no situation that is worth losing my cool over. It has been an interesting experiment. Patton is doing really well despite his rough start. We are so blessed. I couldn't be happier, well, I would like some more sleep, but other than that, I couldn't be happier!
